    Well. Three years later, and I'm this:

    Rationalist
    65 optimism, 42 faith, and 65 logic!
    Rationalism is the most scientific of the philosophies. No matter how bizarre something may seem, rationalists will always discount the supernatural. To them, there is no such thing as a mystical, otherworldly explanation for anything, no exceptions. Everything, no matter how strange, can be proven through science sooner or later. If something is genuine, there is an explanation for it.

    Famous rationalists include: Baruch Spinoza.

    The opposite of Rationalism is Existentialism.

    "Spiritualist

    65 optimism, 60 faith, and 50 logic!
    Spiritualists rely on faith more than anything else. They will always believe in a supernatural power over scientific reasoning. Although they may worship different deities (God, Allah, Buddah, Zeus, and so on), the underlying philosophy is the same. Most spiritualists will seek higher answers in religious works, rather than philosophical reflection, and they tend to be fiercely devoted to their beliefs, even when all evidence points against it.

    Famous spiritualists include: Blaise Pascal.

    The opposite of Spiritualism is Regressionism."



    I don't know how it gets so many answers for faith; most of my answers are "I'm not sure", because I'm a philosophy major and I've realized that we can't really be sure of anything. So it's not true that spiritualism is the opposite of philosophy. As far as a higher power is concerned, I don't believe it is a deity. So the test is wrong. Even though I'm very spiritual, it's based on an emotional appreciation of philosophy and science and ultimate truth.

    Optimist
    68 optimism, 56 faith, and 63 logic!
    Optimists are a dying breed in this day and age. To the optimists, the world is a positive place. Everything is inherently good, and all things will work out in the end. They believe violence will one day be replaced with logic and reason, and that all religions can coexisist peacefully. These are the people who always see the glass half full, and believe that we live in the best possible world.

    Famous optimists include: Gottfried Leibniz, William Godwin.

    The opposite of Optimism is Skepticism.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Regressionist
    44 optimism, 31 faith, and 65 logic!

    Regressionists believe that every question must have an answer, and anything that cannot be answered must not be true. Thus, their search for truth is based around asking the question "Why?" rather than "How?". They're also the most annoying type to have a conversation with. "It's hot today." "Why?" "Because there's no clouds blocking the sun, and no wind to create a breeze." "Why?" "Because the vapors in the air haven't condensed enough to form clouds, and the wind patterns haven't shifted to our region." "Why?" And so on. Famous regressionists include: Paul Feyerabend. The opposite of Regressionism is Spiritualism.
